It's been a while

I was going to blog a bit about a few headlines that make me want to either blog intensely or quit altogether and then I got stuck typing my title. Is it "a while" or "awhile"? It's been a while since I've been in high school and I still need to look up the spelling of words. Spelling isn't my strong suit and forget about gerunds and past participles. (Is that spelled correctly? I don't even care enough to look it up on but you get what I'm saying.) A look on Google led me to this and I still don't know for sure if I did it correctly although I think I did. Take a while to read it for awhile.

On to headlines and thoughts.

Raw Story has one of the best headlines (now an article) I've seen in awhile, "Cheney: My office isn't in executive branch." Uh huh. Can't wait to hear this one.

I read through the letters to the judge in the Scooter Libby case asking for leniency in sentencing. The highlights are that people think he's a great dad, likes to go home to see his kid to bed and is always polite to people. I guess that's enough to keep you out of prison for committing perjury and obstruction of justice. Hilarious to hear that there is no underlying crime since all that says is that if you're really good at lying and obstructing justice then prosecutors can't make the case and thus you shouldn't be charged with obstruction either. Sort of a reward for being so good at committing perjury. The worst part about the pile of letters is that James Carville the Clinton-maker co-signed a "have mercy" plea with his wife Mary Matalin the Cheney aide and former Bush I campaign manager. (He had trick or treat at an undisclosed location for the kids - let my Scooter go! I mean what will we tell the children?) Thanks James for taking the side of the rich and powerful whether they be Democrats or Republicans. Thanks for showing that all you care about are the inside players in the business of politics because that's all it is for you and your wife - a big game, big business. A business the huddling masses aren't in. Next time you want me to contribute to your clients or knock on doors to help get them better jobs I'll tell you to ask Scooter to do it. I stand by my prediction a while ago - Scooter spends 0 days in jail. It's a sure thing. The rule of law is for little people like you and me huddling in lines to get the iPhone. (See below).

Then there's the morons running the campaigns of Hillary and Obama. Hey, Hillary, a video parody of you pretending to be just like a ruthless plotting mob boss might not be the smartest way to put yourself out there. Comedy has to have a kernel of truth for it to be funny but this might be the whole corn of the cob. Nice job. Can't wait for the next video of you pretending to be a power-mad, enabling wife of a politician who could have been one of the greatest presidents in history if it weren't for his inner-fat boy who just wants to be loved. And Obama? Nice memo sent out without campaign attribution. Did that take all of three seconds for it to be published with your name behind it? And here's a thought - leave the political comedy to Jon Stewart. Hillary (D-Punjab) isn't that clever or funny or appropriate for a presidential candidate. Want to presidential? Promote the staff members like W would for such a screw-up.

On a positive note, the iPhone is coming out next friday I'm already in line. I have all my supplies and should get one. There are about 75 crazier people than me in line so I'll keep you up to date on my progess. And if you believe I'm outside an Apple store right now blogging next to my personal port-o-let then you probably also believe that your conversation with Hillary will make a difference or that Scooter is going to jail or that the office of the vice-president isn't in the executive branch.

Have a nice day.
